The Pittsburgh Pirates should be aggressive on the trade market, and while these five players may be division rivals, they also may end up on the trading block, and ones the Pirates should consider.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are likely going to be aggressive in acquiring players this off-season. However, multiple other teams in the National League Central may also be aggressive and try and sell off some of their players as well to bolster their rosters. While inter-division trading is always going to be met with questions among fans, there are certainly some potential trade targets in the NLC.
And that’s what I want to look at today. Who are some potential players the Pirates could go after in the National League Central? These players have had some rumors swirling around them already, and the Pirates should, at the very least, consider them and put them on their radar for the off-season.
